Does your bra fit? No, I mean does it really fit? If you said no, don’t worry, you are not the only one! 7 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra right now! But don’t worry I have learned some very helpful information from Leading Lady- a full figured and nursing bra paradise, that will help you find the right fitting bra!
Before you head out to purchase a new bra, measure yourself to be sure you get the right fit! Here is what you need to do:
- Measure around the chest just under the arms and above the breast.
- Keep the tape measure high on your back and level all the way around. Keep it snug but not too tight!
- That is your band width
- Now measure around the fullest part of your bust-line.
- Again keep it level and snug, but not to tight.
- The difference between the 2 is your cup size. So 1 inch is A, 2 inch is B, 3 inch is C and so on
- Leading Lady has all the information you need to measure your own fit as well as a printable tape measure if you don’t have one!
When purchasing a new bra, the style and color is not the only thing you should be looking for.You need to look for something that is going to be comfortable and durable. A good, quality bra is going to cost a little more than your basic bra, but they should. Spending a little more on a quality bra will look better on and make you more comfortable. They typically last longer as well!
Tip To Know: The center seam across the front of your bra should lay flat across your sternum.
I got to try out the Leading Lady’s Scalloped Lace Under-wire Full Figure Bra in Black and have to say I was quite surprised in the difference in size from what I was wearing. I was 2 sizes off from what I actually needed. My older bras were so stretched out, I did not realize that they were no longer the right size! I have always been large chested and had a hard time finding bras and tops to fit. So I guess I just assumed that I would never find a good fitting bra, was I wrong!
Most bras I have purchased over the years have been very thin, low quality and lasted about 3-4 months before I would have to throw them out! So when opening the package and pulling out this bra from Leading Lady, I was surprised to see how thick this bra was, 2 layers of material and just made very well!
Tip To Know: You should adjust your shoulder straps before each wearing.
My Leading Lady Bra is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn and I love that it fits me every where! I don’t have anything hanging out, bulging over or sliding all over the place. The bra stays snug, holds everything in and looks great!
